{July 25, 2012}   Wrong Era

I hate cellphones. Why? Because they work and dont work.

I miss the days when you had proper forms of communication, talking in person.Then you would know if someone was avoiding or even ignoring you. Now you can blame it on network, or my software malfunctioned.

So what? If your phone stops functioning should it mean that all forms of convo should cease to exist. What happened to letters? In fact how many of us know their friends or even partners handwritting? Are you not ashamed?

Or maybe you are not too excited about writting but you have a killer personality. Why not go visit that person in PERSON. We act like a bunch of rocks when placed in a room full of actual people but enter an online chat room and you have so much to say.

Im not sure this is the world I want to live in. Im not sure if I was born in the correct epoch too.



{July 1, 2012}   Shining in the dark

Ever since I got my driving licence I stopped walking. It is not because I now thinking I am above it. I wanted to walk, I just did not have the time.

However, today I walked.I had not a care in the world and just walked with no purpose. Troubles aside. It felt good and natural.

On my way back I bumped into a woman I met during the days I walked. I hadn’t seen her in a year but she remembered me. She could see me even in the dark.

At first I couldn’t place her face but then she refreshed my memory. I had helped her, a year back to carry her groceries. She had been a total stranger to me.Most people would have walked by, and they did. Some even drove by but since I wasn’t driving, I took what little I had and offered it to her. She was pregnant. And although I had places to be, things to do, I paused and thought about how she felt. Empathy.

And she remembered that. She gave me back that one thing I have been trying to stand for but due to heartache and general life, I had forgotten.

Its the little things. Give with what little you have. You never know what a little kindness will do to someone’s life. It will put a smile on their face and one day when you are short of things to smile about, they may suprise you and give you a reason to smile.

Everyone has a trouble just like you. Just one act of kindness will touch their soul.

You will start shining in the dark. Just like the stars.



Today I was walking in the local supermarket. I was looking for some juice and when I got to my aisle I saw a myriad of different flavours and brands.

For a brief second I was about to reach for my usual Red grape then a thought struck me.
“I know I like grape by why grape all the time?”.

Yes, I am aware that these things we like define us. They make us who we are. But i think they are also the very things that limit our growth.

You become set in your ways and you stop experimenting.

I realized ,standing in aisle number 4 of Bon Marche,that, although I consistence gives a safe feeling and routine to life, I do not want that.

Knowing what to expect is like watching a movie you have watched before. Although you still get shocked by some minor details, you have the same story.

I am not saying I want to wake up in Uganda tomorrow. Adventure is everywhere. Its in picking a totally different scent. Taking a road home from work you have never travelled on. Buying a pair of socks in a colour you do not have. A colour not recognised as YOUR colour.

Start small. One day these adventures might lead to bigger adventures. Just do not lose yourself completely in the process.

I bought PEACH! What are you going to buy?

{May 26, 2012}   Va bene

Once a month for about three days i take time to stay in bed for that whole amount of time.
Yes, you heard me, i don’t go out. I watch movies and listen to music. Thats what i do. Phone switched off or on silent and just me and my thoughts.

Today, day one of discovery. I found out i am a hand full when in comes to relationships. I really am not normal about them and although I have the best girl friend behaviour, not clingy or too jealous. So whats wrong then?

I was wondering the same thing and since none of my friends could give me the a clear opinion, I went to my ex, the one who I know would tell me the truth just because he despises me that much. What did i ever do to him you ask? Nothing, exactly that.

He confirmed what i already thought. I am lousy at relationships. And I have to admit, a part of me wanted to curse at him but I did specify i wanted the outer truth and I did approach him with the question.
So yes, I am terrible at relationships, but so what. I think I am good at the ones that count. We don’t get awards for the number of relationships you can keep but on keeping the right one. The aware being happiness.

So don’t worry if your relationship isn’t picture perfect. Everything will be “Va bene”.

Everyone loves a good shopping disaster. This one has a few twists in tow

compyropa

I saw this great pair of suede platform heels the other day. They looked like they were pretty expensive and maybe they were by Gucci .I had had my eye on them for a while and had considered entering the shop and trying them on once or twice but had never had the courage to do so. They looked like my size from the window but you never know if something will fit you perfectly before you try it on. A girl can dream, right?
S
o one sunny afternoon, I decided to enter the shop and find out more about the shoe, the price, the brand etc. It turned out to be one of the much-loved brand new pair of Gucci shoes from the brands latest collection. Now, I would not know this because I hardly look at the labels on my shoes. If I feel good and empowered…

{April 30, 2011}   GO ahead

See I am ready.
I have made my mistakes and now I am faced with the consequences.
I was in love once,I thought I was. But then it ended suddenly, without warning.
I was shocked. I honestly spent the first two days not feeling anything but after those two days it hit me that it was actually over. Now I was emotionally disconnected and thought that maybe there was a chance I could get this guy back.i was so wrong but I had to figure this out after making a complete idiot of myself.

Under the advisings of my single best friends who had NEVER been in a situation remotely similar to the one i was in,I persued this guy. I told him how I would never be happy and how he meant the world to me.
Bear in mind all these were lies. He could tell.i am not a very good liar. I couldn’t help but laugh while I said all this stuff as it sounded ridicilous but I had to pretend to cry at the same time. It was hard and I managed to fool him for a few minutes. But then he started comforting me and I couldn’t help it and bust into tears of laughter.
He left soon afterward.
I was a bit sad that it enede this way but then I have realised someting asthey days have slowly rolled by. I might have not tackled that issue appropriately. I made a mistake. But that’s life. I may havenot won that fight,I failed to win him back.Life is about getting back up again and I am happy to say I have gotten back up. So go ahead Miss Cupid(Cupid can only be a woman as women are romantic,right?),I am now ready to see the way to my next Prince.
Thank you for the one you sent before. We had our good times,laughs and fights. I wish we could have stuck it out as I really liked my Prince but I guess he wasn’t the correct one. So now I am waiting, I have given you the go ahead!
